No special tools are required for these simple Cheddar Chive Scones. They're made only with flour, cream, cheddar, chives, and a smidge of baking powder, sugar, and salt.
10ozall purpose flour, by weight(2 cups, measured)
1cup+ 2 tbsp heavy cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Whisk to combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cheddar cheese, and chives.
Make a well in the center and add the heavy cream. Gently toss the dry ingredients into the liquid, gradually moistening the dough. Take care not to overstir or work the dough too much, or the scones will be tough.
Shape the dough into a square and cut the dough into pieces, either into 12 triangles or 12 pieces cut with a metal cutter. Place the scones on the sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes, until the dough reaches 190 F. Enjoy!
